It is time for all Islanders to step up and cast their votes, the time is over when you say its too complicated, there are too many choices or to simply claim you don’t understand. There is so much info out there and the choices are not complicated. Certainly the government wanted this plebiscite to appear complicated, they do not want this change. For the two old party’s this will sound the end of their hold on power and majority governments. The only people you hear speak against PR are politicians. Remember Pat Mella, remember Richard Brown and indeed the two Red/Blue candidates in the recent SSide/Wilmot byelection both stated their preference as FPTP. There are two Proportional choices, Dual Member and Mixed member proportional. Vote for these in any order and we will see the present system changed. The other three options FPTP- FPTP +leader and Preferential voting will give you the same old majority government with those wild sweeps from red to blue and back again.
Do you want to see the continued abuse of Tax Payers money?? if so, then by not voting or voting for the same old same old you will guarantee more of the following.
7% ROLL BACK –PLAN B –PNP –BOTTLE WATER PLANT –FISH KILLS –DEEP WATER WELLS –CORNWALL BYPASS –NON TENDERED CONTRACTS –HST –PATRONAGE –NO TRANSPARENCY. AND OF COURSE THE VERY LATEST CRIMINAL ACT OF E GAMING
I cannot believe that the majority of islanders want to see the patronage, corruption and slanted deals in favour of friends and supporters to continue. We have a wonderful opportunity to bring about change with this plebiscite. So please get out and vote, email your vote or phone in your vote. So easy to do and so important to do. Vote for Dual Member Proportional and Mixed Member proportional, in either order.
I rest my case!
God Bless and keep reading
